Fraudsters took personal loans by submitting fake KYC documents
State Bank filed a complaint at Barabazar Police Station
Kolkata : These days, a criminal gang is active in the big city by submitting fake documents and taking loans from the bank. The Barabazar area in particular, known as the financial hub of the metropolis, has also not been untouched by this. A few days ago, a group of fraudsters defrauded Barabazar Public Bank of Rs 2.09 crore by taking a personal loan. The situation is that now the bank and the police are having difficulty in identifying the accused. Earlier last November, a complaint of bank fraud of Rs 2.12 crore was registered on behalf of a private bank at Hare Street police station in the metropolis. During the investigation of this case, the police found that personal loans were taken in the name of many doctors, government employees and others by depositing fake IDs in the bank. Not only this, after taking the loan, the accused did not pay it back. During the investigation, the police arrested 9 people, including an employee of the Gun and Shell Factory. The police believe that this fraud was carried out by a large organized gang. There was also the possibility of the involvement of bank employees. The investigation of this case has not yet been completed. In such circumstances, once again a case of a similar bank fraud has surfaced in the metropolis. This time a state bank located in Barabazar was defrauded of Rs 2.09 crore. A complaint was filed on behalf of the bank at the Barabazar police station regarding the incident. The police have filed a fraud case against several people due to the bank’s complaint. Many women are also involved in this.
what is the whole issue
According to police sources, a few days ago a complaint of bank fraud of Rs 2.09 crore was lodged against some customers by the State Bank Board located at MG Road, Barabazar. The bank said in its complaint that in 2021, various people had applied for fast loans at the bank by claiming to be government employees. Many women are also among the accused. By pretending to be employees of various government departments, their fake Aadhaar cards, PAN cards and other documents were deposited in the bank. Not only this, but payslips and bank statements of various government departments of the accused were also submitted. Based on the said document, in 2021, 30 people got personal loans ranging from Rs 4 to 6 lakh from the bank. It is alleged that the accused did not pay the EMI of the loan after taking the loan. When the bank scrutinized the documents submitted by the accused for non-payment of the loan EMIs, all of them were found to be fake. Not only this, among the people in whose name loans were taken, many poor women were found living in huts. According to police sources, Nandrani Das, a resident of Tollygunge, and Kavita Jha, a resident of Joka, have taken loans of Rs 4 and 6 lakh in their names by pretending to be government employees. Not only this, fake documents have also been deposited in his name in the bank. According to police sources, loans have been taken by submitting fake IDs in the name of about 30 people in this way.
Fraudsters may have relationships with bank employees
According to police sources, all the loans have been taken from the State Bank of Barabazar in two to three months. In such circumstances, it is clear that the fraudsters have carried out the fraud with full planning and conscientiousness. It states the possibility of the involvement of bank employees. According to sources, after examining the documents submitted by the accused, it is found that the people who were taken loans by pretending to be government employees had their salaries sent monthly from the private company into their bank accounts. Also the loan was given only after taking the bank statement of 6 to 7 months. In any case, physical verification or detailed verification of documents may not have been done by the bank. According to police sources, the fraud could have been discovered earlier if the documents had been properly examined by the bank’s officers. At present, officers from Anti Bank Fraud Section of Kolkata Police and Barabazar Police Station are investigating the matter.
